NO MORE FOX NEWS! WELCOME BACK CNN HEADLINE NEWS
Fox News and SIRIUS could not make a deal...
Want to know why? Here is some inside info from our Dec 18th post:
Get Sirius Info, is told that FOX gave XM a â€œgood dealâ€� for FOX News Radio Programming, and the FOX News Channel. The deal was all part of the XM/Direct TV deal. (XM stations on Direct TV) Rupert Murdoch, owner of FOX also owns around 35% of the parent company of Direct TV. The over all deal we are told with FOX, XM & Direct TV are all related and part of one big agreement. We are told SIRIUS was asked to pay an inflated price for FOX content, some reports tell us almost 200% higher prices then XM is paying. - See more chat about this in our forum.

Update: We are told by SIRIUS, that talks are not over, but the contract ran out. SIRIUS wants to make a deal with FOX, and will work to have FOX rejoin the SIRIUS Lineup.
